3. Data Collection on Our Website


Web­sites use coo­kies at times. Coo­kies do not cau­se dama­ge to your com­pu­ter and do not con­tain viru­s­es. Coo­kies ser­ve to make our offe­rings more user-fri­end­ly, effec­ti­ve, and secu­re. Coo­kies are small text files that are stored on your com­pu­ter and browser.

Most of the coo­kies we use are so-cal­led ses­si­on coo­kies. The­se are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted at the end of your visit. Other coo­kies remain stored on the end device until you dele­te them. The­se coo­kies allow us to reco­g­ni­se your brow­ser on your next visit.

You can adjust your brow­ser set­ting to noti­fy you befo­re set­ting coo­kies, allow coo­kies on a one-time basis, turn off the accep­tance of coo­kies in gene­ral or spe­ci­fic cases, and auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­te coo­kies when you clo­se your brow­ser. Web­site func­tion­a­li­ty may be limi­t­ed when coo­kies are deactivated.

Coo­kies requi­red for elec­tro­nic com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons or to pro­vi­de cer­tain func­tions you desi­re (such as a shop­ping cart func­tion) are saved based on Art. 6 Para 1 lit. f DSGVO. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a jus­ti­fied inte­rest in saving coo­kies for tech­ni­cal accu­ra­cy and opti­mi­sed pro­vi­si­on of ser­vices. If other coo­kies (like coo­kies to ana­ly­se your sur­fing beha­viour) are saved, then the­se will be hand­led sepa­ra­te­ly in the data pri­va­cy statement.


The web­site pro­vi­der (1&1 IONOS SE) auto­ma­ti­cal­ly coll­ects and saves infor­ma­ti­on in so-cal­led ser­ver log files, which your brow­ser trans­mits to us auto­ma­ti­cal­ly. The­se include:

  • Brow­ser type and version
  • Ope­ra­ting sys­tem used
  • Refer­rer URL
  • Host­na­me of the acces­sing computer
  • Time of ser­ver enquiry
  • IP address

The com­bi­na­ti­on of this data with other data sources will not take place.

The basis for this pri­va­cy state­ment is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which allows for data pro­ces­sing to ful­fill a con­tract or pre-con­tract measures.
